LOL OK, I guess I'll start..

Prunes are not really in vogue these days are they? I mean, they get a name change to "Dry Plums" (anyone know why?) and it seems that you can't find them anywhere these days..

Perhaps it was the cake..

Worf loved prune juice, he said it was a warrior's drink!

All prunes are plumbs, but not all plumbs are prunes.

I liked the first half of this movie -- it looked like an episode of Bonanza, except there weren't any evil rustlers trying to drive Pellier off his land.

Beautiful color, too. Didn't look faded at all, unlike some of the films we see here which have degenerated into nothing but pink and white tones.

It kind of went downhill after about the third forklift shot. Okay, okay; we get it, they have to move them around! And the stock music just kept repeating itself.

Nice lines:

"The fruit trees are in full bloom, bearing the promise of a fruitful year." (Well, duh!)

"Endless days of sailing through some of the foulest weather in the world..." (Shot shows a ship on a tranquil sea.)
